I’m Still Around…

Happy New Year!!!!!

new year 2018

Just wanted to let my readers know I’m still around. I have been in a kind of funk for a couple of months, but I found some motivation to bring me out of it.

#52Ancestors Challenge:

In my Genealogy Blog I’ll be posting weekly as I am participating in the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks Challenge put on by Amy Johnson Crow. I am hopeful that this will get me blogging more like I use to back in the Yahoo360 days.

Still Reading to do Reviews:

I’m currently reading a book (actually been trying to read it since my last blog). It’s a great story, I am just not use to this writer’s style of writing, which makes me put the book down a lot, and there is an error in the book that my OCD is blocking me from wanting to read it.

Fiction Based in Fact:

For many readers, including myself, if actual places are used we can (I do) get hung up on details. If it’s somewhere I drove through it during that time period, lived there, worked there, etc., and something is wrong in the description, I get a block where I have the most difficult time making myself finish the book beyond the error. I did point the error out to the author, but I don’t think he understood what I was saying. I am going to try to push through my mental block though and finish the book this weekend. I have so many more books to read and review, and there are new ones coming out that I can’t get to until I finish this one.

Side note: If you haven’t been to the particular location, how it is described might not bother you like it has me.

Looking forward to a new year and lots of books!
